OK, jag har inget riktigt inlägg för idag, och eftersom jag vill posta något varje dag så har jag inget annat val än att fuska och istället ge några länktips. Bra tips dock. Edit: nu har jag också lagt till text av Hasan Al-Banna, om jihad.

Blogging the Qu’ran går Robert Spencer igenom Koranen vers för vers, förklarar och förmedlar av muslimer vanliga tolkningar.

Och här på Islam 101 finns allmän information om Islam, dess grundprinciper, begrepp, skrifter, historia, och mer.

Hasan Al-Banna, grundare av den inflytelserika organisationen Muslimska Brödraskapet, skriver i sitt verk Jihad följande: (se Islam 101 ovan för mer info om jihad)

All Muslims Must Make Jihad

Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded. Allah has ascribed great importance to jihad and has made the reward of the martyrs and the fighters in His way a splendid one. Only those who have acted similarly and who have modeled themselves upon the martyrs in their performance of jihad can join them in this reward. Furthermore, Allah has specifically honoured the Mujahideen {those who wage jihad} with certain exceptional qualities, both spiritual and practical, to benefit them in this world and the next. Their pure blood is a symbol of victory in this world and the mark of success and felicity in the world to come.

Those who can only find excuses, however, have been warned of extremely dreadful punishments and Allah has described them with the most unfortunate of names. He has reprimanded them for their cowardice and lack of spirit, and castigated them for their weakness and truancy. In this world, they will be surrounded by dishonour and in the next they will be surrounded by the fire from which they shall not escape though they may possess much wealth. The weaknesses of abstention and evasion of jihad are regarded by Allah as one of the major sins, and one of the seven sins that guarantee failure.

Islam is concerned with the question of jihad and the drafting and the mobilisation of the entire Umma {the global Muslim community} into one body to defend the right cause with all its strength than any other ancient or modern system of living, whether religious or civil. The verses of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Muhammad (PBUH {Peace Be Unto Him}) are overflowing with all these noble ideals and they summon people in general (with the most eloquent expression and the clearest exposition) to jihad, to warfare, to the armed forces, and all means of land and sea fighting.
